Celine lost her niece Karine to Cystic Fibrosis in 1993 and has been involved in the fight against this disease as the Celebrity Patron for Cystic Fibrosis Canada since 1982.

The benefit concert raised funds to support critical research for cystic fibrosis, a fatal genetic disease that causes debilitating lung infections and premature death. As the world’s leading organization fighting cystic fibrosis, the CF Foundation funds more research than any other organization and is fueling tremendous advances toward a cure and improving the lives of those with the disease.

Directed by Grammy Awards producer Ken Ehrlich, the show featured a 31-piece band and orchestra and included Celine’s biggest hits mixed with timeless classics that paid tribute to some of the most celebrated songs and artists of all time.
